Unresolved psychological and emotional trauma can have a longterm effect on people causing physical and emotional problems. Physical,sexual and emotional trauma,bullying anxiety, depression and PTSD can be treated by EMDR (eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) a powerful form of psychotherapy . EMDR is recommended by National Institute for Health Care Excellence (N.I.C.E) for treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
